Should I pinch off new leaves in order to promote blossom growth of my african violet?
When the flowers are spent should I cut the flower stem to the base?

I wouldn't, necessarily, take off any leaves. These plants tend to be a little on the finicky side, and it is best to cause as little stress as possible.

Now, you can carefully cut spent blooms. This will be fine. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/african-violet/african-violet-care.htm
